On a day when the cricket world celebrates the return of the Ashes, Cricket Mobile has taken a bold step to bring more people into the fold.
The new Cricket Mobile app, launched last week, is a mobile payment solution that will make it easier to buy tickets to cricket matches, pay for flights and make payments through any device.
In the U.S., Cricket Mobile will be available on Apple and Android devices, but Cricket Mobile is also available on Roku devices and in the U, Canada and Australia.
For those in the United States, Cricket will have its own “Mobile Payment” page on Cricket Mobile.
That means the app will accept a credit card and will automatically send you a text message.
For those in Australia, Cricket has its own mobile payment page.
Cricket Mobile will also provide an online option to pay for cricket tickets.
But Cricket Mobile users can now make payments on the app through their devices, as well.
“Crickets Mobile is now a way for people to pay, make and receive payments from their mobile devices, and use Cricket Mobile as a payment solution for any device,” said Cricket CEO Tim Knaus.
